Biometric Data is a form of information related to your biometric characteristics which may be used to identify you. Biometric Data includes things like fingerprints, voiceprints, scans of a hand, facial geometry recognition, and iris or retina recognition. Specifically, ID.me may collect facial biometrics and/or voiceprints whenever the user signs up or uses ID.me services.
This Biometric Data is only used to complete the transaction for which the personal information was collected, including fraud prevention and fraud analysis. When it is no longer necessary to provide our services or when you delete your ID.me account, this encrypted evidence will be securely retained as proof of this verification as required by the National Archives per the National Institute of Standards and Technology policy standards (i.e., NIST 800-63-2 and 800-63-3).
What does agreeing to biometric consent mean?
To access and use ID.me services, it is required that users provide explicit consent for ID.me to use a user’s Biometric Data. When you agree to biometric consent, this means that you have agreed that ID.me can collect, use and disclose your Biometric Data as described in this Consent.
